A Free Virtual Event

Join us for the 6th Annual Gilchrist Steps of Hope Virtual Healing Tribute Walk, starting with the video launch on July 23, 2021, at 7:30 p.m.

Gilchrist's Steps of Hope remembrance event provides support by creating a community for those missing, remembering and honoring loved ones who have died. The event incorporates the power of community, nature and ritual to honor loved ones and offer comfort in grief. This is the second year we are offering this event virtually.

Please join us to learn more about this unique way to embrace and support your grief while honoring those special ones who have died. We will offer space to learn about nature's power to support our emotional selves and create a community, even if distanced, to take your "steps of hope." All participants will be invited to later share photographs of your walks and those you are honoring!

We look forward to this time "together."
